Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This edition of Vivian's introductory text (which was first published in 1991) includes the password to a supplemental Web site. To the book-oriented it may seem like a marketing gimmick, but the site does provide access to resources not listed in the printed text, such as links to relevant professional organizations and information about media-related careers. The text surveys topics including the overall pervasiveness of the mass media, books, magazines, newspapers, records, movies, radio, television, the Web, journalism, public relations, advertising, and issues such as ethics, law, and media's impact on society.
